After hundreds of people took to the streets of Chester on the weekend for the Santa Dash, bikers from all around the country are gearing up for one of their own.
Bikers will meet from 10am and for the second year running the ride will support the Lady Taverners.
Both charities rely solely on fundraising to keep them going.
Anyone on a motorbike, scooter, trike, quad or side car can join the ride out from Smiths Honda to Claire House – a hospice providing respite, end-of-life and bereavement care for children and young adults with complex medical needs.
When the bikers arrive, the children who are well enough will come out to see over 200 elves and Santas bearing gifts and donations.
For some of these children they will be spending most if not all of their Christmas at the hospice.
Karen Smith from Smiths Honda said: “As we all gear up for our Christmas holiday it’s important to think about those around us who aren’t as fortunate. Children at the hospice suffer from life-threatening and life limiting illnesses that they and their families have to live with every day. Even if you’re not a biker and you see the convoy on Sunday, please support them by letting them stay together safely.”
Chairman of Lady Taverners Tracy Warrington said: “We are delighted to be one of the chosen charities to benefit from this fantastic fun event – giving young people, particularly those with special needs, a sporting chance in life.”
